Marc Gunn on the Move...
My family and I moved to Birmingham, Alabama in 2011 so my wife could finish grad school. She completed a PhD. Now she's finishing up a degree in genetic counseling. That means, it's time to move. This summer, we are moving to Atlanta, Georgia for the next stage in our lives.
I share this because the next three months are CRAZIER than normal. We are packing. Gwen and Kenzie are finishing school. I have the California Autoharp Gathering in May, followed by my Celtic Invasion of Dingle, Ireland.
I'm trying to schedule everything ahead of time. But it's tough. In fact, if there's any audio editors out there who want to lend a helping hand, drop me a line. I'd love some extra help.
In any case, thank you for your patience. Slainte!
From Cannon Balls to the Cosmos...
Every castle has a colorful past. Most housed royalty. The Blackrock Castle in Cork, that looks like a picturesque small scale castle, but it began as a defense against pirates... Listen to Erin's Isle.
Good traditional Irish music from Danu, Ailie Robertson, Catherine McEvoy, Liam O'Flynn and more. Listen to Copperplate!
New Celtic Music...
New Celtic CDs from Jean Marie & The Lads, Allison Lupton Music, and Claymore. Find links here.
